Oh crap, that Thomas Wayne similarity!
Sounds great.Just a heads up, the Watchtower Database DC Universe streaming timeline (Year One) video goes up tomorrow (Sunday).
Unlike with the DCAMU video we did where I workshopped my notes in that continuities timeline thread, I played this one pretty close to the best. After finishing it all off I did come over here to cross reference a few things and noticed there were a few placements I disagreed with. Once that's live I'll share the docs for my heavily footnoted script as well as my general notes doc, which includes screenshots of almost every possible timeline marker mentioned, so that things can be adjusted accordingly as seen fit by you all.
If Selfishmisery doesn't want to do it, that's fair, but after Crisis, depending on how complicated it is and how smooth the continuity is ('66 Batman is a mess), I might do it. I've already got a word document with live action items, just got to add in the comics. https://1drv.ms/w/s!AjpgBLeW7E3Mglp8qR575MnH9iq1My personal preference would be to just keep it in the same list--it sounds like a lot to add, and of course it is. But in the grand scheme of things, it's really not that much considering the sheer number of episodes the main DC/CW shows drop every year. In five more years, the new DC/CW output alone will dwarf whatever shows are tied in via the Crisis Crossover. It's going to be cumbersome and complicated whichever route it ends up going. And while some of the older shows might seem tangential now, it seems likely that there will be more crossovers with old shows in the future.
That said, I think there might be a workable compromise: limit the detailed DC/CW timeline to the shows currently on the CW, but remove the "Simplified Viewing/Reading Order" from the first post. Start a new topic for "DC Live Action Multiverse Simplified Viewing/Reading Order", and have that be the new all-inclusive home for everything tied in via Crisis and any future crossovers.
Since it would be just a list of episodes/movies in the approximate year they are set, with no complicated flashback/timetravel entries, it would be a shorter, more manageable list that would represent the full multiverse and allow those of us watching the shows in order a handy resource.
He looks a little younger in the picture. Mainly the face and hair shape are the same, his age and weight being the main distinguishing factors.Oh crap, that Thomas Wayne similarity!
How naive of me.I don't think it'll be that bad.
Batman (Wonder Woman counting comics)
Lois & Clark
Smallville (DIrishB already did that one, so it won't be that hard)
I can't imagine Titans, Gotham or the DCEU getting involved. Just old series, really. We'll see. I'd happily watch these shows if I can get a hold of them.
If it's related to the movie, it should be canon to the movie, why it could be canon to the TV series?
1939Can someone make a Watchmen TV Series reading/viewing order please?
With all the related things canon for the TV Series?
Thank you very much! I will catch up all of these before the TV series, thanks!1962

Something like that, I think? Going through it adding timeline markers, but I'm pretty sure this is correct.
Note: there is an extra in-universe pirate comic in Watchmen and Before Watchmen, but it's events are non-canonical within the Watchmen world so I don't think it should impact the viewing order. Technically Before Watchmen's pirate comic was released post-Watchmen.
Yeah, that was a little bit distracting, but at least they acknowledge it, probably.Dick Grayson's whole thing about"five years ago" can't work if in very, very late December 2014 Hawk and Dove weren't even on the Titans team yet. (At least by December 29, 2014.) And the episode "Aqualad" occurs over the course of MORE than a couple days.him killing Jericho
I guess Dick Grayson rounds up 4 years and 3 months(?) to "five years"?
EDIT: Funny how DCU's synopsis for "Aqualad" said it was "four years ago". Almost like they're aware of the timeline mistake.
Just a note, I've changed some of it as I'm going through it. Might want to wait a little bit for me to finish.Thank you very much! I will catch up all of these before the TV series, thanks!
I'd probably move Hank & Dawn back a year and keep the December 18th date ignoring the 2014 part. Pahaps it's an extremely rare newspaper typo?
